Detailed features & specifications
This model was introduced in 2022. The dial is made of white enamelled white gold. The hands are made of blued steel. Limited to 50 watches, this edition is available exclusively in A. Lange & Söhne boutiques.
When the integrated slide is actuated, the striking mechanism sounds the time in hours, quarter hours and minutes. Our most experienced watchmakers meticulously tune each of the 50 limited-edition watches like a precious musical instrument. With the newly developed L122.1 manufacture calibre, the three-part enamel dial crafted in-house and a platinum case that is water resistant to 2 bar (20 metres), this masterpiece lives up to the loftiest expectations as well.
When the repeater sequence is activated, the sapphire-crystal caseback reveals exactly how the mirror-polished gong hammers execute the respective sequence of strikes on the two gongs that are wrapped around the movement. A refined system of artistically choreographed racks, snails, levers, and wheels controls the 191-part mechanism. The chiming mechanism also provides a pause elimination feature. It skips the otherwise common pause between the hour and minute strike when no double tone must be struck for the quarter hours in the first 14 minutes after the top of the hour.
The minute repeater is one of the most formidable challenges in watchmaking. It sounds the current time on demand. The RICHARD LANGE MINUTE REPEATER enables an exceptional time format: It strikes a low tone for every full hour, a double tone for every quarter hour and a high tone for every further minute. Additionally, the chiming mechanism has been enhanced with extra features, such as the patented hammer blocker and a pause elimination. Our most experienced watchmakers meticulously tune each of the 50 limited-edition watches like a precious musical instrument. With the newly developed L122.1 manufacture calibre, the three-part enamel dial crafted in-house and a platinum case that is water resistant to 2 bar (20 metres), this masterpiece is not only an acoustic marvel but also a feast for the eyes.
